ESEC Japan: congatec presents high-end robotics computing technology ‘made in Germany

Deggendorf, Germany / Tokyo, Japan, 10 May, 2017: congatec – a leading technology company for embedded computer modules, single board computers and embedded design and manufacturing services – spotlights its new high-end embedded computing portfolio for robotics and real-time automation at the Embedded Systems Expo & Conference (ESEC 2017) in Japan (West Hall 1F, Booth W4-20). Designed from the ground up to meet highest ‘made in Germany’ quality standards, the comprehensive product portfolio includes the unique hypervisor technology from German real-time virtualization expert Real-Time Systems, consolidating the congatec robotics computing offering in a single, application ready, 4-in-1 hardware platform for PLC, HMI, IoT and Industry 4.0 systems.

congatec’s new hardware virtualized platforms improve the integration of previously stand-alone robotics systems and build the fundament for the next generation of smart, cyber-physical controlled systems and deep learning humanoid robots. They also increase the utilization of costly hardware while reducing investments as well as operational costs through lower energy consumption.

Hannover“Japanese robotics and automation vendors and German embedded real-time computer vendors are predestined to form an outstanding cooperation to generate most innovative high quality robotics and real-time control systems. We are therefore very excited about the Hannover Declaration of close cooperation between Japan and German industry announced at this year’s CeBIT fair. This spirit of collaboration will accelerate our support for Japanese robotics and automation vendors, enabling them to stay on top of both the global humanoid and industrial robotics market as well as connected industrial and medical systems,” explains congatec CEO Jason Carlson.

The application ready combination of embedded boards and computer-on-modules from congatec with real-time hypervisor technology from Real-Time Systems is perfectly suited for connected robotics, industrial machine controls and medical systems. Engineers benefit from application ready and functionally validated real-time platforms that significantly reduce their verification and validation efforts; a comprehensive documentation package that is ready for own certifications; and personal integration support that does not stop at driver or library settings but delivers the entire real-time capable, virtualization ready platform. Together, these benefits enable engineers to most efficiently exploit the full congatec multi-core embedded board and computer-on-module range, from Intel Atom, Celeron and Pentium processors (codename Apollo Lake) up to Intel Core and Xeon D processors (Codename Kaby Lake) and AMD G-Series and R-Series, for their various applications.
